I think it could be of value to start looking at
models can be applied to these interchange
We're still grappling with all the nuances of
but we will be getting there in V3 - and your
provide some use cases to get started.
Having BPSS able to define the interchange
obviously adds significant value - especially
state management, tracking, document handling,
QoS settings and much more.
I've got a tutorial and a sample model (JPG and
out at my resource site.
This model could also output ASAP related XML as
sinc one model can output multiple syntax
I'm also going to be adding signals (obviously of
ASAP use!) to the model in the next couple of
weeks - we just discussed that on the BPSS team
Anyway - checkout what's there right

Subject: [asap] RE: Demo questions
These are good questions, so I am copying the entire
are preparing an extended demo. Here is how it works. We use the
.Net reference client to invoke a process in iFlow. We can then bring up
a graphical depiction of the process. The iFlow process (whic simulates
the retailer) then makes 3 parallel calls to the other engines: Handysoft,
EasyASAP, and Staffware. The octagons below represent the ASAP
interaction with these systems. We then wait for the three
responses. The color of the octagon will change when the response is
received, so we will actually see a visual indication of the response from
manufacturing. Finally, when all three responses are back, the process
is completed, and then the reference client receives it's notification.
In the response message is the three manufacturer's names and the three
great thing about this demo is that it is a single demo, lasting less than 5
minutes, that involves all 5 of the participants. The down side is that
it requires every one of the participants to work.
have tested each of the interactions individually, but so far every test of
the integrated demo has failed because of technical glitches. We will be
trying again today. I think we are very close to getting this to work,
and I think this graphical representation with real time update will be MUCH
flashier and show the action of the protocol in the best
far I think we have not had problems with the Handysoft implementation.
I will give you an update on the status in a little while.

Just following up with a few
Did you ever decide to use the expanded scenario,
utilizing a parent process to call all other processes in
Did you test this?
Did any other vendors test this?
What time during the overall presentation, will the
actual demo occur. I'd like to near our server at that
